Smallies

Recommended Posts

BleacherBum3

My friends and I will be up at Kab from the 19th-26th. Just wondering what we should expect from the smallies? Wondering what tackle to bring and what areas to circle on the map? Any help would be greatly appreciated. Also we're looking to camp out somewhere one night instead of staying in the cabin....any suggestions? Thanks

Last year we were up about the same time. We did really well in Lost Bay around the small island just east of Lost Bay campsite. We initially caught a couple on spinnerbaits we were pitching for northerns and then switched to rapalas, grubs, cicadas, etc. and really hammered them. They were primarily out on the reef that runs NW to SE off of the east end of the island. A little ways west from Lost Bay, we caught a bunch off of the rock marker out in front of the Eagleview campsite and the rock markers on the west end of Cuculus Island. Find a rock pile and you'll find smallies. I would try the rock marker in front (south) of Knox Island and also the rock marker on the south shore between Nebraska Bay and Little Richie Island.

      To give you a idea of what it is like here this is how my dock has sat since last August. The river is at lake level here.  Almost no Spring flow from melting snow. Just a trickle here and there. I've burnt any grass off for 200 feet around my house, farm buildings and farm equipment so there is a little protection in case a big fire gets going. The grass has been burnt off between the highway and the airport to give Waskish a little protection in case a fire gets going south of town. Westwind cleaned their channel last fall so they should be OK for boats. Total acreage of URL and LRL is 272,000 acres so it would ONLY take 177,261,312, 000 gallons of water to raise the lake level 2 feet.

      you can get to horseshoe by boat but not far enough to get any fish yet.   This may change in the next few days.   I plan on ice fishing on shoe today.   Should be able to land a nice amount of slabs.   Don

      Drove by Elysian on my way home this afternoon. Shoreline didn’t appear to be pulling away, view from the highway for what it’s worth.

      Got the property surveyed today. Originally plotted back in 1968 and sure enough there where metal pipes marking 3 of the corners but who knows how long it would have taken me to find them. They placed a monument on the missing corner. Hopefully this warm weather sticks around, need to remove some trees and get the wheel house moved in. Thanks everyone for your responses!

      Was out on the lake today. Easy 24-26" inches of hard ice yet.

      Drove around the entire lake today. From the road it looks like the warm weather has melted most of the snow. Only saw about a half dozen people fishing. Ice isn’t pulling away from shore yet. Stopped at the Borden access and walked out a bit, kicked myself for not bringing the fishing equipment, easy travel out there.

      interesting day fishing on 30 inches and 60 degrees out   no monsters but got a very round hybrid and some rock bass with neat eyes.

      Tomorrow I'll post a fish pic. I hope.

      Plastic PC is 3/4 x2 x3.5. Drilled shallow holes on the transom side for the adhesive to cling to. Pretty solid. Time will tell
